Originally released in 1988, the Nike Air Trainer TW was an off-shoot of the classic Air Trainer SC. The Trainer TW incorporated some new design features which differentiated itself from its older brother such as a lighter composition and a low cut profile. Through out its time, Bo Jackson was the poster child and spokesperson for the Air Trainer series.
18 years after the original inception of the Air Trainer TW II in 1989, the Air Trainers are back. Four new colorways were created with the help of Supreme. An accompanying series of Nike x Supreme baseball jackets were also produced. Three colorways are available for the jackets.
Stateside Supreme stores will see this package release on Thursday, November 8th while the Japanese release will take place one day later on Friday, November 9th.
